Why MCTC...

"Our condominium overlooks the campus, and MCTC has been a very good neighbor to us. So, as an art lover, I took a painting course which allowed me to sharpen my technical brush stroke skills and let my creative energies flow."

–Sylvia Sabo, MCTC Continuing Education Student

“I feel MCTC is one of the best options for computer training. It has been a great experience and MCTC is an organization that we will use in the future.”

–Julie Droegemueller, Caribou Coffee

“MCTC was great to work with. Our customized training director understood our request and was always responsive to our needs. I appreciated the partnership.”

–Betsy Hearn, Liberty Diversified International
